Description of the container:

The design combines iconic scenes from the Holy Trinity column stylized into other roles, such as Přemek Forejt, the chef of the Entreé restaurant, helping to carry the cross while cooking with the other hand. The figures are combined and connected with e-waste they are carrying for collection, with the city the dominant feature in the background.

Author’s medallion:

Ivan Svárovský

A graphic artist and illustrator living in Brno, his work is released under the name yvans. He is dedicated to art using traditional techniques and digital forms, from simple illustrations and collages in periodicals to full-scale interior designs. His strongest platform is clearly the digital sphere connected with technologies. He moves easily and with a great deal of creativity in the multimedia space. His view of the world is optimistic, rippling but colourfully toned and harmonized.

He started his career as a graphic designer in 2007 at Meatfly, where he remained until 2013. That year was a milestone in Svárovský’s career and he has worked as a freelancer ever since. He is engaged in long-term cooperation with projects such as DJ duo Malalata (the Balkan Bashavel series), Student Majáles, Fokus Fest, Barlife magazine and more. Commercial orders continue to come his way thanks to joining the DRAWetc. graphic studio (since 2007) from Starobrno, Raiffeisenbank, Vodafone, Red Bull, and E-ON. He founded the fashion brand Cult of the Road in 2013, which has slowly and surely built up a distinctive reputation among lifestyle streetwear brands. He becomes a member of the newly formed Hearts of Creation illustrators’ association in 2013 as well.

“I am glad that I was able to participate in the project and create designs for objects installed directly in the city environment. This is a new experience for me and I like Brno, where I was born and live, and Olomouc, both for their atmosphere and historical genius loci, and for their openness to modern art.”
